How to be a good and happy housewife article

'The good housewife needs to maintain a good appearance and do not repeat the mistakes of some women who after the marriage lose their attraction.'

hmmconfused

Hahahahahahahaha nobody show this to Mr PaleHousewife please!

Pixie I've been poorly all day. Thanks for posting that - it really made me laugh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PixieHot Sat 05-Jan-13 21:49:35

And I didn't even quote the worst bit...

PixieHot Sat 05-Jan-13 21:50:42

Fly grin, I hope you're fully recovered now.

UptoapointLordCopper Sat 05-Jan-13 21:52:05

I recommend clicking on the "book" link. grin

'You can also have hobbies' - that's fucking generous.

Confused though - the housewife spends "all [her] day cleaning and tidying up" yet is also learning to cook, shag and plan birthdays. How is she doing this? Does she do 12 hours of cleaning and 12 hours of shagging-cooking-planning? I think we should be told!

PaleHousewifeOfCumbriaCounty Sat 05-Jan-13 21:57:24

I suppose one could multitask?!

ZZZenAgain Sat 05-Jan-13 21:58:01

perhaps she asks her dh to write her a schedule

WiseKneeHair Sat 05-Jan-13 21:59:48

I think I've just time travelled back to the 1950's. shock

LynetteScavo Sat 05-Jan-13 22:02:24

so, basically you have to be a good cook, and a good shag.

PaleHousewifeOfCumbriaCounty Sat 05-Jan-13 22:04:24

And not physically repulsive, i think.

I thought this was going to be 1950s article but it was written last year?? Is it a wind up?

ZZZenAgain Sat 05-Jan-13 22:12:41

that's it.
Good in the kitchen, good in bed and good to look upon.

And you can also have hobbies if you like.

Sunnywithshowers Sat 05-Jan-13 22:19:14

Maybe we should email the company and remind them that a) we don't live in the 1950's and b) the article is offensive?

tribpot Sat 05-Jan-13 22:34:03

I'll have to ask my DH to find out if I'm allowed to send emails.

grimbletart Sat 05-Jan-13 22:39:23

It has to be a wind-up.

julz09 Sat 05-Jan-13 22:42:18

Am i right in thinking it was man that wrote this? Looks like a man in the photo. Sounds like something dh would write. hmm

StuntGirl Sat 05-Jan-13 22:55:01

shock This article is like, two weeks old. It's tone and style is like something from the fifties. They do know April Fool's Day is months off, right??

ashesgirl Sat 05-Jan-13 23:04:10

Ok, we have to get in touch with him! What a shame there's no comments area on this article

ashesgirl Sat 05-Jan-13 23:06:23

He has a twitter page!

noisytoys Sat 05-Jan-13 23:14:10

This is so funny

Anniegetyourgun Sat 05-Jan-13 23:46:29

Thank God I'm divorced, I can be as physically repulsive as I like. Which is just as well, really.

Nuttyprofessor Sat 05-Jan-13 23:46:39

I emailed him earlier asking for a quote for a time machine to go back to the 50s he replied that he agreed it is a terrible article he should have vetted it, it will be removed.

tribpot Sat 05-Jan-13 23:51:45

Wow, so he's not the author?

Sunnywithshowers Sat 05-Jan-13 23:58:28

Well done Professor, that's great news. grin

Startail Sun 06-Jan-13 00:03:21

Link takes me to a cleaning firm advert not an articleconfusedconfusedconfused

StuntGirl Sun 06-Jan-13 00:28:38

I think the owner's have removed it grin

StuntGirl Sun 06-Jan-13 00:31:03

Actually just checked my emails (I emailed complaining about it too) and he's apologised and said it would be removed immediately. Amazingly fast response, quite impressed actually.

Sunnywithshowers Sun 06-Jan-13 00:34:34

That makes me very, very happy.

tribpot Sun 06-Jan-13 08:33:25

Good chap. One page down, most of the rest of the internet to go!

PixieHot Sun 06-Jan-13 08:55:14

Well done Professor smile, what a good and fast response.

BigGiantCowWithAKnockKnockTail Sun 06-Jan-13 08:58:04

Bugger. I wanted to read it and get some tips sad

tribpot Sun 06-Jan-13 09:21:02

Most of the key messages are here, BigGiantCow.

1. Do a LOT of cleaning. I mean all-freakin-day cleaning.
2. Pay close attention to your appearance (I guess all that cleaning should help keep you fit).
3. Learn to cook. It's very easy, you can find out how on YouTube.
4. Your husband (or indeed female partner, although the article generalises it to husband) has the right to expect perfection but may be magnanimous enough to allow a lower standard in certain circumstances, even offering to help out to ensure the house is immaculate.
5. Children cause mess. This is about the only mention they get in the article so presumably the message would be: ideally don't have them if you want to be the perfect housewife.
6. Be good at shagging.
7. You may have a hobby. You should use it planning things for other people, though.
8. Enjoy.

ashesgirl Sun 06-Jan-13 10:07:50

Well done to those who complained and got it taken down

StuntGirl Sun 06-Jan-13 19:55:17

I bet he wondered what the hell was going on when he got all those complaints last night grin
